This murder mystery is full of twists and turns, and keeps the reader guessing until the very end.
There is strong character development throughout; even the minor characters are memorable, and this is due to author Susan Clayton-Goldner’s subtle use of speech patterns and phrasing in dialogue, descriptiveness of each character’s unconscious mannerisms, habits, etc. It is so refreshing to come to know and remember each character through this style of introduction.
All carry their own burden of angst, which gives the reader little clues about not only the obvious suspects, but also those we would not suspect. However, (and this is my opinion only), the two main characters, Matt Garrison and Detective Winston “Wind” Radhouser, come off as over-burdened by their personal demons. Winston, in particular, buries his grief in overwork; which made me question how he could possibly continue his job as a homicide detective, given the nature of such work. Yet, it all succeeds in the unfolding story, for their demons give them insight into the intimate flaws and strengths of the people in their orbit.
Another great thing about this novel is the description of police procedures throughout the story. Fascinating stuff! Ms. Goldner’s research should be cited as an example of thorough research, for this knowledge she shares with us in the action of the story enhances belief.
“Redemption Lake” will keep you reading into the wee hours – it’s that good! I recommend it to all fans of a page-turning mystery.
Mathew is a troubled young man: divorced parents, his mother with a new husband, and a break-up with his long time girlfriend play negatively on his mind. Looking for understanding, he visits Crystal, his mother's best friend and the mother of his best friend. He awakens in her bed. Thus, the beginning of trauma, secrets, and murder.
Colorful, sensitive writing coupled with the dramatic and perceptive mark this novel, grabbing the reader's attention. The characters are shown in all their humanity -- good and bad, real and believable, with innermost feelings showing.
Emotionally engaging suspenseful and original. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, About Good and Evil.
It is a very satisfying read although as it deals with issues as searingly primal as a profound Greek drama. Ultimately, it is also a testament to the human spirit and the heights that the best of us may reach.
It was fairly easy to figure out whodunit but overall it was an enjoyable read.
